It’s that time of year! The holidays have wrapped up, and 2020 is finally in the rearview mirror. January is all about looking ahead with optimism. It’s a time for new beginnings, fresh focus, and resetting.
This is the perfect time to start thinking about how to reset your body after the past couple of months of wining and dining. Even if you managed to escape the holidays without gaining any extra weight, you may have still over-indulged and are left feeling a bit sluggish.
But instead of signing up for a fad diet (which we definitely don’t recommend!), why not consider a 21-day detox instead? Here are three reasons why detoxification may be just what you and your body need:
Whether it’s the water you drink, foods you eat, or air you breathe, you’re affected by the chemicals in your environment. These chemicals can impair how your body functions, which can leave you feeling fatigued or hazy with brain fog. (Remember the last time you ate a huge meal or a sweet dessert, and you felt lethargic or fuzzy? It’s the same concept!)
Flushing these chemicals out of your body frees up your body’s energy, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized.
Think about all the things your body absorbs – foods, drinks, and beauty products, to name a few.
All of these get absorbed by the body and can take a toll on your liver and digestive system, causing unwanted gut issues. During a detox, you’re feeding your body quality, unprocessed foods, and supporting it with the right kind of supplements. This helps remove the toxins that can wreak havoc on your digestion and can even help reduce constipation and bloating.
A cleanse is designed to help your body naturally flush out toxins and support several key areas – namely, your lungs, brain, kidneys, digestive tract, bloodstream, skin, and liver.
Your organs, especially your liver, are powerhouses when it comes to expelling toxins. But as you go about your normal life, your body accumulates clutter and debris. When this happens, your liver can become less efficient.
Think of it like a highway during rush hour. The congestion of cars causes slowdowns, and nothing is moving as it should.
Gently detoxing helps to clear the roadways in your body and support your organs so they can keep doing what they do best.
We all want a vibrant body, tons of energy, and a clear mind. An annual detox can help you achieve just that.
By giving your system a break from your normal foods (or those holiday treats!), you’re giving it the added care and support it needs to keep you strong and healthy.
